With a 8GB HDD of VirtualBox, selecting automated partition, and selecting 7000mb for root partition, the installer say that root partition need at least 7gb, so, i put 7100mb, but say again need 7gb.
If i have 8GB and want select 7100 for root partition and only select swap, i have /root and swap, the /home is into /, so, how is possible that need 8,4gb in total?.

In a Slackware or ArchLinux I can select 7000mb for / and 1000mb for swap, total, 8gb, but calculate need 8.4, why?. Automated partitioning need more than 1024MB for swap? (the vm has 2gb of ram).

Try to set "7G". Swap for autopartition equal ram. You can use install.cl_autopartition_swap_size for custom swap size. Before run installation execute:

cl-core-variables --set install.cl_autopartition_swap_size=$(( 1024 ** 3 ))
